Liberal Arts at Babson

Build critical thinking and communication skills for the modern business world.

A strength of the Babson education is how our courses integrate business fundamentals with the arts and the sciences. Along with core management skills, you’ll develop new perspectives and insights into yourself and the world you live in, becoming a culturally aware thinker and communicator able to approach social and economic problems from different angles.

Choose from liberal arts courses such as:

  • Art and Ecology
  • Imagining Nature, Imagining Ourselves
  • Sports and Literature
  • Literature and Philosophy of Madness
  • Constructing and Performing the Self

“Liberal arts courses teach you not only essential subject matter, such as history or art or rhetoric, but also the crucial skill of critical, analytical thinking. They also help you to understand yourself within larger contexts, cultivating a more open, inclusive attitude.”

– Elizabeth Swanson Goldberg, Professor of English
